Bad idea? SYRIZA says early elections possible if debt deal remains elusive

Could things get any worse for Greece?

How about calling early (way early) elections. Right now the country needs strong leadership to get out from under the EU’s thumb, and find its sovereignty…not more doubt and uncertainty that elections will certainly can bring.

Via Reuters…

Greece’s leftist-led government may call early elections if the country’s international lenders do not soften their terms for a cash-for-reforms deal, Deputy Social Security Minister Dimitris Stratoulis, a hardliner in the government, said on Friday.

“The lenders want to impose hard measures. If they do not back down from this package of blackmail the government … will have to seek alternative solutions, elections,» he said.

Stratoulis is closer to the far-left faction of the ruling SYRIZA party, and it was not unclear if the statement represented a wider view within the party. But it underlined the deep anger at the proposal from lenders and a growing sense that the party will seek alternatives to avoid accepting the plan.
